Jackie's Boy
"Anomaly"
R&B


Having written songs for and worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry today including Justin Bieber, Madonna and New Edition, just to name a few, received a Grammy, and been nominated for several, Jackie's Boy has been one of the most closely watched emerging R&B artists since he stepped out from behind the scenes to pursue a career as a solo artist. "Anomaly",  his latest record is evidence that he is poised to become one of the most influencial new R&B acts since iconic artists like Johnny Gill, who he recently worked with on the song, "Soul of a Woman" which is sitting comfortably at number 16 on the Billboard charts and is rising fast. It's one of those records that instantly reminds anyone who knows anything about real R&B music what they've been missing while at the same time delivering the best of the genre's new sounds. It's free to download on Soundcloud for a limited time.

"Truth Be Told"

Take it to the bank

For many unsuspecting fans, this is the record that seduced them down the blissful path of no-return that is Italian band, Amycanbe's discography. Ahead of the release of their forthcoming EP, "White Slide (Live)", we are taking a musical journey back in time to this sensational track which was first featured on their 2011 album, "Mountain Whales" - a highly praised 11 track record that set the tone for the illustrious career they've enjoyed and continue to enjoy today as one of the top emerging, internationally recognised bands in Italy. As the title suggests, the track delves into unsolved mysteries and unanswered questions - some simple, and some complex. Instrumentally, it will lead you into a colourful, fantasy world of your own where everything is possible and only the truth prevails. It's mellow and inviting, soothing, relaxing and has a very pure air about it that makes it excruciatingly exciting and will give you butterflies. When it comes to the vocals, it's one of those songs words just can't describe. Hearing lead singer, Francesca Amati's voice for the first time is enough to make anyone start to wonder what other amazing things out there in the world they've been missing. "Angelic" wouldn't even suffice in describing the purity and innocence of the sound of her voice but it's a good start. Overall, "magical" is a word that is often used to describe this song, and it is nothing short of that.

Gold

Better known as GoldMynd, BigMoneyBrezzy is an artist that never disappoints, in fact he exceeds all expectations more often than not, and this is one of those cases where he has grossly surpassed the wildest imaginations and desires of any and everyone who has been following and listening closely by a hundred fold. The beat is superb - the type of beat that will take you to the moon and then shuttle you between space and cloud nine just to be sure your adrenaline is still rushing. The lyrics are masterful - anyone who knows anything about Brezzy knows to expect the unexpected every time he rhymes but "out of this world" doesn't even begin to describe the extent to which his wordplay has been taken in this brilliant, thoroughly satisfying record. The delivery - juicy, there is no other way to describe it - take your favorite rapper's flow, dip it in liquid gold and this is what you'll get.

Don't just hit the play button all willy-nilly, crank your speakers up to the max, remove any fancy EQs, bass boosters or plugins so you can feel it in its purest form, and then get up on your feet - you'll want to do a little bit of bouncing around.

"Black And White"
Country Pop


It's complicated

A mildly somber but very relatable track centered around the sometimes inevitable ups and downs of relationships. Los Angeles country girl, Christie Huff has shown immense progressive development as an artist almost exponentially over the past couple of years and it just keeps getting better and better. Boasting exquisite songwriting and performance, this immaculate song marks yet another all time high for the fast-rising country pop sensation. Released on the 22nd of March, it's her second record of 2019, following just over 2 months after the release of "Urban Love" back in January. 2019 is expected to be a very exciting and promising year, not just for Christie but for her loyal fans as well, with back to back gigs around the US already lined up for Spring and Summer.

Lyrical massacre

An oldie but a goodie indeed that has stood the test of time. Ez Lyrical Skitzo is one of those artists that is constantly reiterating his superiority on the microphone both lyrically and stylistically. Switching flows like a mad man and killing beats with a vengeance is the reason he's called Skitzo, and on this track he really let go and gave his fans his all. With an electrifying bass line, a very concrete beat and rapid, machine gun flows he let any similar sounding rappers and copycats know the score.

The gateway to Heaven

Melbourne, Australian 9 piece band, Echo Drama's 14 track album, "Before It All Ends" was released to critical acclaim as expected just over 2 months ago. Even with the amazing track record of the band it has still somehow managed to take reggae music fans and critics aback, leaving many lost for words.

When this track hits you, you'll instantaneously feel no pain. It's groovy with a powerful bass line that almost immediately makes it completely impossible to stay still, it's very soulful and it's full of life. It is very busy and vibrant instrumentally, with an utterly exciting, tropical feel about it that is grossly overpowering in a good way. It is one of those records that is guaranteed to brighten up your day or liven up your mood no matter the circumstance. Add this to your quick pick-me-up playlists.

A very gripping narrative

This is one of those records that reminds you what hip hop music is all about. Slow burning from start to finish, it is masterfully orchestrated and smooth all the way through, with lyrics centered around struggle, diligence and persistence. Featured on Daiyon's latest album, "7 Daiys", it is quickly becoming one of the Wisconsin, US underground hip hop star's most talked about, most played and most celebrated records. Reminiscent of masterful storytellers like Nas, it's a track you can't help but nod along to.

"Gettin' It"
R&B


Welcome to lovers' paradise. 

Taking Atlanta, USA's highly competitive emerging R&B music scene by surprise with the release of one of her most notable records to date, "Lights On", back in 2013, Tyler Noel's voice still stands out and is hailed today as one so tender and sweet it makes you feel loved. "Gettin' It", her latest single was released on the 20th of February and has got fans excited about real R&B all over again. It's been just under 3 years since her last record, "Clap Back" which was released back in 2016. The track shows immense growth stylistically and vocally, and reveals a fuller, more sensual and more tender sound. It's slow, minimal, sprinkled with loads of sweet harmonies. It will whisk you away to a passionate and special place and then paint you a deeply moving picture of the struggles of a woman in love.

Awesome

The buzz surrounding Washington, DC folk band, Wylder's latest single, "Ready To Break", which is featured on their forthcoming album, "Golden Age Thinking" has gotten bigger and bigger every second since its release back in November, 2018. Showcasing the band's signature sound - a graceful, colorful, utterly refreshing blend of exciting rhythms and bright, uplifting melodies - in all its glory, the track also features a sizable doze of indie that gives it a really big, almost anthemic vibe. It marks an all time high for the band artistically and professionally, and has heightened the anticipation of their next release and the ensuing tour almost exponentially. The music video for the track was released on the 1st of March. [Play video below]
